Overview

Garmsar and The Salt Cave Tour

The idea of a day trip to Garmsar is one of those journeys that will undoubtedly exceed all your expectations. The region is filled with natural wonders, salt mines, colorful rocky mountains and the so-called Martian hills which are on top of the list of sights in Garmsar. The silk road passes through this region, which means there is also tons of history laying underneath these grounds.

We start our trip from Tehran. After having the breakfast and visiting the colorful mountains on the way, we arrive at the salt mines of Garmsar which are basically caves made out of salt. When you enter these caves, the color tints on salts are the first thing that will catch your eyes. When you breathe in, you can easily notice that your lungs are enjoying the pure, fresh air. It is said that the salt layers in the cave work as a natural filter for the air coming inside the cave, creating a unique atmosphere with a pleasant temperature. In fact, there are people with breathing problems who would come to these salt mines just for one reason: taking in some fresh air.

Another highlight of this tour is the historic village of Padeh(Tehran Tour). We will walk through the historical texture of the village where we will also visit the remaining of the old castle, the historic bathhouse (hammam), and the ice house of this desert village.

We will also go to the Garmsar city itself where we visit the historic water reservoir of Garmsar. This day will be packed with visiting numerous sights, thus to regain some energy, we will also make some grilled potatoes along with a cup of smoked tea on fire (known as “Chai Atishi”) which is certainly the favorite way of preparing tea for many Iranians.

Excellent service and support Excellent Service ! i am surprised by the reactivity and the will to help and find quickly hotels, flights and solutions for me, even though the holiday season makes things challenging. Chatting through whatsapp made things super smooth and extremely easy. I was interacting with two people from TAP Persia, Rojin and Sohrab. They were just amazing ! They are the ones who reached out to me directly and interacted instantly with me day and night. Great job guys !I used earlier a different company but i was disappointed, i strongly recommend TAP Persia .Keep up the great work !

Fabulous agency - can't recommend more highly for travellers to Iran I decided to go to Iran at short notice and was only able to do so thanks to the exceptional service provided by TAP Persia.What further complicated was my ignorance of being in the middle of Nowruz and the impact that has on flight availabilities etc.In the first instance, that revolved around speedy obtainment of a visa as well as other aspects such as insurance and mah card via their great-value welcome pack.Thereafter, all of my accommodation, tour guides and transport between destinations was arranged by the beyond-wonderful Mahgol with tremendous efficiency, patience and responsiveness - I could not praise nor thank her enough.Communications are as good as can be.With my lack of Farsi and, more specifically, incomprehension of the alphabet, doing things in this manner was the only way to go.All of the guides - Fatemah, Amin, Fardin, Moji, Peyman and Masoud - were fantastic being passionate, knowledgeable, smarter-than-average bears and very nice people.Rasool, Mehrnoush and Sohrab in the office were also very helpful.I would say though that, to help them (especially) to try to draft your itinerary as much as possible before approaching them as this will save time i.e. places, days in each, hotel price-range then trust them to select the latter for you.

Great Service 🙂 TApersia accompanied us well on the way to our Iran visa. My wife's visa took 2 weeks longer than mine (German EU & I'm Swiss). Our questions were always answered quickly by the nice Mahgol via WhatsApp. We think she did her best for our visa processing. After a while, we were also asked how we were doing! Nice, support and promptness are at the highest level.

Solo Saudi female in <3 IRAN <3 10/10. It's hard for me to be succinct, but I will try. I am a Saudi who has been impressed, curious, and infatuated by Iranian culture(s), Iron Age history, Islamic & other religious histories, architecture, and geography for over 15 years. Yum, and food. I wanted initially to continue my Persian language study at Dehkhoda Institute, however student visas take much longer than other visas to process, and I would likely miss my class during the processing time. I was disheartened and scrambled through my Google bookmarks looking for old travel that I had saved over the years in my Iran folder. 😉 TAP Persia was bookmarked numerous times and I quickly applied for a tourist visa. Hey, I can still practice some Persian as a tourist, right? THE PROCESS WAS SO EASY. So smooth! Mahgol deserves all the praise and recognition for bringing relief to my anxious-self (because I had already long-ago booked my airline tickets and took time off work!), and she walked me through all the steps in a timely manner and with competence and grace. Even during the first week of Norouz and Ramadan, I got a friendly update and advice -- got my tourist visa within 5 or 6 days (the Ministry was closed for Ramarouz, but WOW that was still quick). I cried from happiness and surprise... Thank you thank you. I will be in Iran April to mid-May. Originally I just registered for TAP Persia welcome package + visa help, but now I'm pretty curious about signing up for one or 2 of their tours now. I am beyond impressed and excited. This travel company, Mahgol, & this team already made me feel safe and like I'm going home, and I imagine with their business practice, will prosper for many years down the road. Thank you so much. Someone please remind me to update this post with photos once I arrive to Iran <3

Iranvisum Ich habe mein Visa für den Iran über TAP Persia beantragt, da der normale Weg zu kompliziert war und sehr viele potentielle Fehler birgt. Ich kann den Service definitiv empfehlen. Alles ist sehr gut und detailliert beschrieben. Der Preis für diesen Service ist es in meinen Augen definitiv Wert. Auch der Kontakt nach der Beantragung über WhatsApp war sehr gut. Sehr freundlich und hilfreich.

Walking around the salt cave was like meditation. The whole team was super. It made us feel safe and secure the entire time! I recommend anyone to go with them.
